Students in Mr. Matt Anderson’s Geometry classes were able to see one of the real-world applications of Geometric proofs today when Lieutenant
Commander Rich Schwartz discussed the role of logic and reason in his profession as a Judge Advocate General (JAG) attorney with the Navy.
After discussing some of the famous court cases students had learned in their history classes, L.C.D.R. Schwartz explained the court procedures used in all cases, and the difference between civil and criminal cases. More importantly, he discussed how the logic in Geometry proofs is used frequently when proving court cases.
Lieutenant Commander Schwartz's position as an attorney in the Navy is vital, but his most important role is as father to St. Patrick students, Ritchie (9th grade) and Joseph (8th grade).
Thank you, L.C.D.R. Schwartz for connecting the lessons we learn in Geometry to real life situations.
